Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons – The Night

Beware, of his promise
Believe, what I say
Before, I go forever
Be sure, of what you say

So he paints a pretty picture
And he tells you that he needs you
And he covers you with flowers
And he always keeps you dreamin’

If he always keeps you dreamin’
You won’t fear the lonely hours
If a day could last forever
You might like your ivory tower

But the night begins to turn your head around
And you know you’re gonna lose more than you’ve found
Yes, the night begins to turn your head around

Beware, of his promise
Believe, what I say
Before, I go forever
Be sure, of what you say

For the word become too easy
If you don’t believe I’m leaving
And goodbye may come too quickly
If you think he really loves you

If you really think he loves you
You would give your love so sweetly
And the day would last forever
You would fall in love completely

But the night begins to turn your head around
And you know you’re gonna lose more than you’ve found
Yes, the night begins to turn your head around
